The world has some great museums; The Guggenheim, The Louvre, and The British Museum are all world class institutions. Here at Culture Trip, we don’t just love the big and famous, we love the unusual too. Here then, are 15 weirdly wonderful food museums that prove ‘if you collect it, they will come’.
We’ve all taken our eye off the stove at some time in our lives. The result? Burnt food. When this happened to Deborah Henson-Conant’s apple cider, she decided to start collecting other examples of burnt food, and thus the museum was born. If you’ve ever burnt food to oblivion, you can add a photo to their facebook page, but as for the actual exhibition, it’s only made public on very rare occasions.
Not one, not even a few, but 15 museums are part of the this family of institutions scattered across the Mediterranean from Spain in the West to Italy, Greece, Turkey and Israel. The Greek one in Sparta is a modern museum telling the story of olives in the Greek culture.
‘Two all Beef patty special sauce lettuce cheese pickles onions on a sesame seed bun,’ goes the Big Mac’s famous jingle-cum-recipe method. Now over 40 years old, the Big Mac has its own museum; pose next to the world’s largest Big Mac model as well as finding out more about its inventor.
